Counsel for the Defendant Mr Christopher Loxton instructed by Kennedys Solicitors.
The claimant was injured whilst going down stairs at an airport terminal in England. The airline was Ryanair. The terms and conditions of the ticket which allowed the Claimant to fly said that Irish Law governed the agreement and how to interpret it unless the Montreal Convention provided otherwise. The Claimant said that Irish Law applies to the contract under the Terms and Conditions. The Defendant said that the contract paragraph did not apply to the claim and that English Law had to apply. The Court held that Irish Law applies to the remedies under the contract.
